Halsey & The Chainsmokers Pay Tribute to Avicii at Billboard Music Awards 2018 (Video)

Halsey and The Chainsmokers appear on stage together at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday (May 20) in Las Vegas.

The “Closer” collaborators presented an award and also took a moment to pay tribute to their late friend Avicii, who passed away recently.

“We’d like to take a moment and talk about our friend Avicii. His passing was a great loss for the music world and for us. He was an artist who inspired so many in so many ways. Simply put, he meant so much to us and everyone in the EDM community. Everyone who worked with him would agree that he was such a joy and it makes this tragedy all the more painful. It’s a reminder to us to be there and to support and love all of our friends and family members who may be struggling with mental health issues,” they said.

Earlier in the night, Halsey wore a different dress while walking the red carpet.

FYI: Halsey is wearing a Redemption Couture dress, Roger Vivier shoes, an Edie Parker clutch, and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry on the carpet. She changed into an Alexander Vauthier dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and Jennifer Fisher jewelry.
